From the Desk of Dr. Andrew De Forestand unpublished articles, laboratory research, epidemiological and clinical studies,correspondences, safety guidelines, tower site hazards, community actions and legal briefsfrom around the world, will reveal a most troubling picture of the EMF\MicroWave Industrydrama that has been laid squarely in our lap, encouraging all involved to err on theconservative side of safety for our precious children and staff, particularly in light of Nextel’sunderhanded and poorly planned installation agenda.Fortunately, Grace Church, The Carden Academy Family and surrounding neighborhoodmembers, has substantial academic and professional depth within its small population, and I believe after reading the enclosed materials, one will leave with a feeling of profounduncertainty and unwelcome distrust of Nextel’s agenda and threats to bypass our community,local jurisdiction and constitutional rights under the 10
Amendment, by going to the FederalLevel.Mr. Harrisson, the alarms on troubling health effects of Cell Tower and phone MicrowaveRadiation indeed have been sounded some time ago, and in fact they were, as early as 1989,when independent of Communications Industry research began to reveal:- a change in calcium concentrations was identified with exposure to very low levels of microwave radiation(SAR of .05 - .005 W/Kg) University of Washington-1995: a study suggested a correlation between cell phone radiation and childhood leukemia;-1998: when a study demonstrated DNA damage at microwave levels 1\5 that of current USSafety Standards;-2001: In a letter to the Vermont House of Representatives, Dr. Henry Lai, Research Professor,Department of Bioengineering, University of Washington reviewed seven(7) laboratory studiesfrom 1989 to 2000,
demonstrating changes in the blood brain barrier, decrease inreproduction functions, decreased eating and drinking behaviour, DNA damage and molecular stress under very low exposures to microwave radiation.

for research recommendations:
“Additional laboratory and epidemiologic studies relating to childhood leukemia and ELF magnetic field exposure were strongly recommended…. investigation of the potential effects of RF fields on cognition and thedevelopment of childhood brain tumors was considered particularly urgent…”
;-2005: published in Neuroepidemiology, regarding Acoustic Neuroma or Meningioma:
‘…digital cellular phones and cordless phones increased the risk to some extent… In themultivariate analysis, analogue phones represented a significant risk factor for acousticneuroma.

, based on the documents submitted tothe Council for Work life Research in March 2000 from more than 400 people and from their relatives, doctors or engineers performing field reduction. The percentage of letterwriters withhigher education was high – some were postgraduates and many were engineers – and they all had the ambition to describe their resulting handicap in as much detail as possible for thebenfit of future research.-
